Ok, I've owned my computer for 8 years now never had a problem before, have burned tons of disks...

now for some reason today I tried to burn my files for back up, and it says F:/is not accessiable.
incorrect function
this pops up in a little window with a red circle and a white X in the upper left corner.

don't know what's wrong but I have a ton of pictures, videos and programs I don't want to lose....PLEASE help!

I own a sony CRX175E this is a CD-RW drive, never had issues before, only fishy thing is on occastion, the drive would disapear completly in the past, it still plays normal CDs but will not open up as a burner, or auto-play with blank CD...

please help, PM or somthing please...

do you get the error - "power calibration error" - if so that is also a sign of a drive on the way out, also a sign of bad media, from what you have said and i have had it before i can burn a disc - eject it, and place it back in the drive an the drive will not read it, even though it burnt it and verified it, got a new drive and disc was fine

If your in the USA, download Sony's DriveCheck to make sure it is the drive. Could be a cable needs to be reconnected.

I downloaded and ran the program, however it says burned, and read fine, everything said successful...

now when I go to my computer, and it says the drives this drive is coming up as a CD Drive, when I thought it use to come up as CD-RW Drive....

is there a way to change the drive type?

If you right-click on the drive and select properties is there a recording tab?

If not then go into device manager and uninstall the drive then let windows re-detect the drive.

everytime I have problems with any optical media drives I look for firmware upgrades. This drive seems to be old and finding firmware might be hard to come by. But also 20x dvd burners are being sold for like 20-30 dollars and not a pricy upgrade. Hell I burn so many dvds I have to change out burners every six months.
